BDx Data Center Spotlight: Introducing SIN1, Singapore’s Newest Data Center

The first stop on BDx’s Data Center Spotlight Series tour brings us to Singapore!It should come as no surprise that BDx had its eyes on this small but fierce tech-mecca since our inception last year. Rapidly becoming one of the world’s largest data center hubs, Singapore, often referred to as a miniature “Silicon Valley,” offers unrivaled connectivity advantages to meet the rising internet and cloud exchange needs and challenges of global and local enterprises alike.In fact, the island-state boasts the highest megawatt per capita globally.

Just last month, we launched our state-of-the-art data center, SIN1, to hundreds that logged on from all over the globe to commemorate this groundbreaking moment in BDx history. The facility, located in Paya Lebar, Singapore, is adjacent to the data center cluster along Tai Seng Avenue and just minutes from local landmarks and ports. Following a successful acquisition earlier this year from Telstra, SIN1 is now an integral part of the BDx portfolio, unlocking valuable opportunities for customers looking to connect into Asia. 

Super Singapore 

Behind the glitz and the glam of Singapore, you will find an evolving and technologically robust island-state, packing a punch way beyond its size. Its desirable and strategic location empowers enterprises to easily access Asia-Pacific’s emerging markets. Singapore’s vast connectivity further bolsters its position as not only the gateway to Asia – but also Asia’s gateway into the world.

Singapore presents a myriad of other benefits to companies scaling across borders and accelerating digital transformation. From its investment in AI-driven initiatives,political stability, tax incentives and low-disaster rate, Singapore is a prime location for thriving businesses in today’s digital era. 

Racks, Power, Action 

Housing 1,800 racks with a 7.3MW power capacity, SIN1 is a freestanding data center in a secure compound. Inside, you will find world-class power and cooling specs built to accommodate next-generation computing and technology requirements. As businesses scale and digitally transform, SIN1 has the capacity to support and provide a protective cocoon over your physical and virtual infrastructure. 

As with all our data center locations, we assure 99.999 %+ power availability as the standard SLA. Moreover, SIN1 offers a minimum N+1 redundancy, uninterruptible power supply systems and redundant backup diesel generators to keep your business powered on. What’s more, SIN1 was awarded an UpTime Tier 3+ Design Certificate, SS564 GreenMark Gold Plus, TVRA, ISO27001, and is PCI-DSS-certified. 

Additionally, customers can easily integrate both their physical and virtual infrastructures via the BDx Single Pane into a managed hybrid ecosystem, connecting the new Singapore location through a highly automated cluster of data centers globally via BDx SoftConnect.

And most importantly in this era of COVID-19, we have arrangements in place at all BDx data centers allowing customers to virtually inspect facilities, get DDs done using local independent third party assessors, and have smart hands available to do the deployment, all without having to fly in people in case the customer doesn’t have a local office.

Why SIN1? 

Singapore is among the top three data center hubs in the world. Almost every large global colocation provider is present in this island-city, abuzz with activity. While they all juggle multiple balls and volley with each other to be good at everything, BDx is focused on being great at just one thing— providing you the best housing for your hybrid eco-system. That’s it, and that’s all. What we are saying is, when it comes to providing you your physical infrastructure and associated cloud connectivity, you won’t get better service anywhere else.That’s our promise.
